For this card I used a die from the Cuttlebug Heirloom Ornaments set. I trimmed the top and the bottom from the die cut in order to make it look like a vase and then I just positioned and glued the sweet flowers and ferns in place. The sediment line was drawn using a ruler and the word "celebrate" is from a PTI "celebrate today" stamp.
And just for fun I thought you might like to see a picture of the beige botanical chair cushion on one of our outdoor deck chairs that I used for my card inspiration:
My card is also entering the following challenges:
CASology, where the code word is "flowers." I went a little off course last week with my lack of white space, but I think this one will pass mustard. This week's sponsor is Serendipity Stamps.
